If you've been looking to purchase a PlayStation 4 and are also really excited about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Sony's got a deal for you. On Nov. 4 and 5, buying a PS4 at select retailers will get you a free copy of Infinite Warfare, allowing you to get right to some futuristic fragging as soon as you set up your new console.
Sony's blog post on the deal is fairly vague, only noting that the deal applies to the "slimmer, lighter" PS4 in the U.S. and Canada and that you'll get Infinite Warfare for free even if you buy the $299 Uncharted 4 bundle (that's a whole lot of blockbuster gaming for a good price).
That leads us to believe that the deal only applies to the slimmed-down PS4 released in September, and not the older, chunkier models. And since the special ends on Nov. 5, don't expect to use it towards Sony's 4K-ready PS4 Pro. That console hits on Nov. 10.
Sony's website doesn't specify which retailers are participating in the sale, so you should check with your local store before venturing out. The deal already appears to be available on Best Buy, and GameStop is also offering the special as of today (Nov. 3), according to its weekly ad. Better yet, GameStop will let you trade the standard free copy of Infinite Warfare for $60 credit towards the game's $80 Legacy or $120 Legacy Pro Editions, both of which include a copy of Modern Warfare: Remastered.
Want an Xbox One instead? You can still take advantage of this deal, in a sense. For a limited time, you can buy an Xbox One S at select retailers and get a free game of your choosing, including Infinite Warfare. This special also applies to bundles, meaning you can get your free game on top of a boxed-in copy of Gears of War 4, Battlefield 1 or Madden 17.
With holiday shopping season in full swing, these are just a few of many console specials you'll see over the next few weeks. We already know that both the PS4 and Xbox One S will sell for just $249 on Black Friday, with a variety of bundle options for both. But if you absolutely need to have a console right now, both Sony's and Microsoft's weekend deals are solid.
